Student Loan Extension Frustrations

Trying to apply for an extension on my loan is consistently an awful experience. Key Bank does not care about your hardships, only their money. This is in surprising, stark contrast to federal loans through AES, who are very helpful and understanding.

First I am screened by a lower level representative who has canned responses. After speaking with the person for a while, they finally pass me on to someone who can actually help.

The problem I just experienced: I had an extension last year, which ran from January to March. I called for a second extension in November, and was informed that there needed to be a year in between the extensions, and that I could call back in January.

After multiple bouts of back and forth, and pleading my case (I just need a break from their payments so that I can recover from the costs of having a baby) I finally find out that I actually need to wait until March to reapply. Why did the 4 or 5 other people I spoke with along the way not mention this to me earlier, rather than wasting my time?

Now I'll be waiting until March, hoping that I can support my family and Key Bank at the same time.

Is it me???

Key Bank is the worst. I made Deposit with a check. The check was from a local bank a block away. I needed to cover an auto withdrawal happening the following day. I asked "should I go to the other bank, cash the check and deposit cash here?" Key employee said "no" the hold on the funds will be lifted before the auto withdrawal goes through. Fine. Did my due diligence knowing how shady Key is. Didn't matter. $38 stolen in overdraft fee.. How does MY MONEY TAKE DAYS TO BECOME AVAILABLE TO ME, WHEN THE MONEY I SPEND GOES THROUGH IN A BLINK? One word (two words)....as$ hole$

Ashamed to admit that I worked for Key Bank

I just closed my checking account that I opened in 1976 when I became an employee of The Cleveland Trust Company (a distant ancestor of the current Key Bank). I won't go into details, but Key Bank's attitude, consistent failure to even appear to want me as a customer have driven me to move 2 business accounts and my personal accounts to another bank.

They simply don't care.

They didn't even ask me WHY I was closing an account that I have used for 39 years.

Today I received notice that I had overdrawn my closed account because they are still charging me fees for a CLOSED account.

There are banks that do want your business. US Bank is one that I can recommend.

It's your money, take it somewhere else.
